A new evolution in accelerator coasters, the Wing Rider Coaster is an enchantment for riders and spectators alike. Not only offers this coaster a ground hugging ride enhancing the sensation of speed, but also with the revolutionary design of the vehicles, passengers will be ‘flown’ in a way previously unknown through the various track figures.
These innovative vehicles suspend the guests slightly diagonal over the ground on ‘wings’, as opposed to sitting above or hanging under the track. Ergo, rather than the track blocking a visual field in front of the passenger or above the passenger, respectively, this vehicle design allows for a totally unobstructed visual field for EVERY passenger! Additionally, the over-banked curves provide a sensation completely different for each guest according to their position relative to the ground. The flying impression is increased when the trains are shot from a standing start to their “take off’ speed of 100 km per hour in just over 3 seconds utilizing Intamin’s patented hydraulic launch system!
